Brother President Bede Hayes would like to thank everyone on behalf of FHL for your support of the race evening on 12th June. In the end, 36 households from 14 Circles joined us, including a family from Nazareth. In addition to raising awareness of the work of Brother President’s charity – Friends of the Holy Land – the evening raised well in excess of £400 with further donations to be added to final total.
Brother President Bede Hayes cordially invites you to a virtual Race Night to raise funds for Friends of The Holy Land. www.friendsofholyland.og.uk

Stourbridge Circle’s 600th meeting on Wednesday, 11 March took place not at its usual venue but at the impressively appointed Himley Hall in Dudley. There were visitors aplenty and the VIP guest was Bishop David McGough. Unusually for such an occasion, the dress was informal (and none the worse for that). A good meal was enjoyed by all, as were the speeches (not least because they did not go on too long!
In the light of current advice from the government and on the recommendation of Provincial Council Steering Group, Sutton Coldfield Circle have cancelled their April meeting and AGM due to have been held on Monday April 20th at Moor Hall Hotel Sutton Coldfield.
